Barry Rose Water Reclamation Facility Rehabilitation

Pearland, Texas

BBI's scope covered the rehabilitation and improvements of the existing wastewater treatment facilities including bar screen, conveyor, demolition of the existing sand filters to install Disk-filter systems, the removal of the abandoned thickener mechanism to install a new bridge-supported sludge thickener; replacement of the broken centrifuge unit with a new centrifuge system; upgrade of the plant-wide SCADA system; rehabilitation of existing motor control center and electrical transfer station.

BBI removed the existing sand filters to install two Disk-filter systems with smaller foot print and increased filter capacity. Reuse the abandoned clarifier structure to install a new bridge-supported sludge thickener mechanism with new aeration equipment, saving at least $400,000. Replace the broken centrifuge with an energy-efficient centrifuge system including new controls, saving electricity cost and polymer consumption. Barry Rose WWTP Rehabilitation was awarded TPWA Project of the Year, 2014.
